Congrats to Marvin P. of Missoula, Mont., for winning a MyCharge Portable Power Bank 6000 in last week's giveaway.

Are you a massive fan of massively multiplayer online role-playing games? Then you'll massively like this week's prize, a Guild Wars 2 Collector's Edition, plus five Digital Edition access codes you can share with friends. Say goodbye to your free time, folks.

The fantasy MMO, released in late August, takes place in Tyria, "an endlessly intriguing place, stuffed with mystery and adventure, gifting you with gorgeous sights and personal stories that etch themselves into your memory," according to a review from our sister site GameSpot.

Yesterday, the game from publisher NCSoft and developer ArenaNet got a major update with the expansion pack The Lost Shores. It adds lots of new gear, a new dungeon to conquer, and more.

The Guild Wars 2 Collector's Edition includes the game, plus more physical and digital Guild Wars swag than you can shake a fire-breathing sword at: a 10-inch Rytlock figurine; a 112-page book on the making of the game; a best of Guild Wars 2 soundtrack CD; five art prints, a custom art frame... The whole shebang retails for $149.99.

Each Digital Edition access code, meanwhile, is worth $59.99, bringing the total value of this week's prize to about $450. So how do you go about getting all this gaming goodness for free? There are a few rules, so please step away from Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 for a moment and read carefully.
